Visited early evening on our way to a gig at Festival hall so we didn't have time to linger but we managed to get in 3 courses and drinks.

The starters were perfect - best tandoori mushrooms I have had in Australia, and delicious aloo chat.

Mains were prawn malai, palak paneer and a brinjal dish, all very delicious and well prepared. Definitely not the standard cheap curry sauces you get in a lot of Indian restaurants.

Garlic naan was was plump and juicy, the kashmiri naan maybe a little dry but still good.

Desserts were gulab jaman and kulfi, all top quality.

The service was very good, although the one waiter was rushed off his feet which slowed us down bit.

We eat at Indian restaurants regularly in Australia and overseas - this was one of the best meals we have had, certainly in Australia. I can't wait to go back, with more time to explore the menu this time.

Went to the curry vault in Melbourne last Friday night for tea. Hubby and I shared two dishes and some steamed rice. It was absolutely yummy.
Great food .... great service

The smell was magnificent as we walked in and we couldn't wait to eat. The vegetarian biryanis was the best I have ever had. Vegetarians have a great selection to choose from. The meat plates were huge. No one was disappointed with their dinner we can't wait to good back.
The servings are big and reasonably priced.

We had a craving for Indian food so stopped in the Curry Vault based on reviews, and we were sorely disappointed with the food. We ordered chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, lamb korma, and palak paneer as main dishes. The curries were tasteless! They looked delicious, but every bite fell flat. The samosas were ok. The garlic naan was so entirely covered in garlic chunks that it was soggy - ok for those who love eating straight up garlic, but not for us.

In general, I'm not picky about service or ambiance, and they were fine as far as I can tell.
